What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Rethink Your Drink Campaign: Choose Health. Drink Water


I little graphic from the Rethink Your Drink Campaign.  The healthiest drink of course is water.


The graphic shows that water by far has the least amount of sugar.  Some drinks have as much as 17 teaspoons of sugar.  For me with diabetes, who per meal should not have more than 45 grams of carbohydrates, I would have to distribute this much sugar between many meals.  Soda has 14 teaspoons, but juice drinks have 17.  Even energy drinks have lots of sugar.  Sheri has purchased some sugar free additives for water if you must have sugar.  Milk has about one teaspoon of sugar in a cup size serving.  The sugar is all natural lactose.
